Dear Lemon Lima, - Press Quotes

“A spoonful of sugar, to say nothing of bright pastel colors and friendly bunny rabbits, helps the medicine go down in the...winning prep school comedy, “Dear Lemon Lima,” – The Hollywood Reporter

"Juno"-meets-"Napoleon Dynamite" – Variety

"...beautiful compositions and super-lush lensing bring a candy-colored sheen to Yoonessi''s universe, where wilderness and suburban life meet, and semi-innocent nostalgia commingles with the characters'' often sarcastic contemporary sensibilities." – Variety

"As refreshing as an Astro-Pop on a summer’s day.” – LA Times

“A candy-coated love letter to the bittersweet heartbreak of youth, the film is a compelling treatment of the often painful yet triumphant quest for identity during adolescence.” – Flavorpill LA

"If ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ had had a bigger heart it may have turned out like this sweet and smart comedy about high school misfits.” – Time Out London

"a sweetly spun tale of a young girl’s pursuit of love, acceptance and friendship in the isolated beauty of Fairbanks, Alaska." – Paper Magazine

“The debuting Suzi Yoonessi ably remains the right side of twee in turning her adolescent journal into a delightful misfit comedy…She treats the darker moments with due gravity. But she also uses fond nostalgia and gentle lampoon to explore identity, peer pressure and belonging without ever patronizing her protagonists or the audience.” One of The Guardian''s top 10 films of 2009 you probably won''t have seen – The Guardian, London

"...DEAR LEMON LIMA is not airy cotton candy, sweet and unsatisfying. It’s a hot fudge sundae, hot and cold and sweet and salty and soft and hard, all at once, all delicious." – Gordon and the Whale

“Important issues and attitudes intertwine with sharp and sunny dialogue, and a light is shone on a divide that most likely goes unnoticed in the continental United States.” – Film School Rejects

"...a competitive collision course of self-discovery worthy not just of an Ancient Greek odyssey, but also of a Revenge of the Nerds comparison, and you have a movie that''s as much about the heartbreaking cruelty of life as it is about the erratic beauty and wonder of it." – The Examiner

"A more poignant Napoleon Dynamite.” –The Cleveland Sun News

”Dear Lemon Lima captures the true spirit, mood and behavior of girls of a certain age and stripe, the built in melodrama." -The Film Files

“Sweet, touching, funny and heartbreaking, Dear Lemon Lima does not go where you think it will, does not end the way you’d expect.” – Connect Savannah

“Stealing the hearts of everyone who has sees this film, DEAR LEMON LIMA is the most charming, genuine, cute, sweet and utterly adorable film! Cotton candy colored joy.” – The Culver City Observer

“Dear Lemon Lima captures the true spirit, mood and behavior of girls of a certain age and stripe: the built in melodrama, the Douglas Sirk colors, it''s all there in an Alaskan setting.” – Write Movies

“With a winsome, understated lead performance from newcomer Savanah Wiltfong and a colorful visual design distinguished by pastels and Sweethearts candies, Dear Lemon Lima takes an offbeat yet compassionate look at heartbreak and identity discovery at the onset of teenagehood.” – Under the Radar magazine

“Well-crafted and with a strong girl-bonding theme, this film will resonate for anyone who was an outsider at school.” – The Quietus

“This is a feel good movie which makes you feel as you leave the darkened theatres after a weekend cram packed with everything different that the world is a wonderful place and good does win over evil.” – The London Season

“Themes of race and difference mixed in with cupcakes and bunnies? Yes, please. It don''t always have to be militant, y''all.” – Hypen Magazine
